How Solar Energy Works
How solar energy works is a combination of technology, economics, and customer service. But it begins with the sun beaming enough energy to earth each hour to power global civilization for a year. With the right equipment, you can harness your share of it and power your life on sunlight. Blue Raven Solar combines all those into a hassle-free experience to make going solar almost as easy as flipping a switch.
The Technology: Photovoltaics, power inverters, net metering, and photons from the sun create a clean, renewable power source for homeowners. Switching to solar shrinks utility bills and your carbon footprint while boosting the value of your home.
The Economics: Falling equipment prices, lucrative tax incentives, and attractive financing make solar energy more accessible to average homeowners than ever. In today’s energy market, rooftop solar often pays back its initial price in just a few years.
The Service: Going solar happens in steps: consultation, design, permitting, installation, inspection, and energization. Each step involves its own process. When you go solar with Blue Raven, our team works hard to keep the whole experience trouble-free.
Become Your Own Power Plant
At Blue Raven this is the heart of what we believe: our nation’s current power generation is not sustainable. As a nation, we still get over 67% of our electricity from the burning of fossil fuels.
Regardless if one believes in global warming or not, we can all agree that the toxic pollution that these carbon-based energy sources spew into the atmosphere is not a good thing. The simple test is this: would you like your family to live next to a coal-fired power plant?
Standard electricity is produced from fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas. When burned, these fuels emit chemical gases causing pollution and harm to our environment. Fossil fuels are not only destructive to the environment, but they are also a limited resource. Solar electricity is by far one of the cleanest forms of energy.
Coloradans are jumping at the chance to become a part of the renewable energy movement. We’re excited to help you throughout your solar journey and hope to help you make a positive impact on the environment while saving you thousands on your electricity bill! As America’s #1 solar installer, we continue to grow throughout Colorado, so please get in touch to find out how we can serve you.

“We chose Blue Raven because each of the initial contacts was pleasant and professional. We also saw some positive ratings online and can now add our own affirmation. Throughout the process the workers were easy to communicate with and did quality work. After one year we are experiencing just what they predicted, i.e. we are no longer being charged for electricity, but only the very small amount the utility charges to be on their system. We received our tax credit this spring and very happy after one full year.”

Thinking of making the switch to clean, renewable energy? One of the first questions that may come to mind “How much money will I save?” While the question at hand might seem one-dimensional, solar savings go far beyond reduced electricity bills. Solar saves in three areas: electricity bills, tax credits, and the environment.
Solar Saves on Electricity Bills
Owning solar panels can save you upwards of 90% on your monthly electric bills! At Blue Raven Solar, we are committed to helping our customers start saving immediately. We provide multiple ways to finance your new panels. Blue Raven offers customers the Bluepower Plus+ option, which pays for customers’ first 18 months of solar loan payments. During these 18 months, the only cost that customers will have is a small monthly charge of around 10 dollars to have your panels stay connected to the grid. All in all, it is our mission to help our customers save tens of thousands of dollars during their solar journey.
Solar Saves the Environment
Another aspect to consider when you decide to go solar is the impact it can make on the environment. In its lifetime, the average residential solar system will offset the energy produced by burning over 80 tons of coal or 175 tons of carbon dioxide. The energy generated is also equivalent to planting 4,000 trees. So yes, solar panels make an impact and help our planet, and you can feel good knowing that you are making a difference.
Solar Saves through Tax Incentives
By owning your own solar system, you qualify for tax deductions from the government. In 2020, the government lets owners deduct 26% of the cost of installing a rooftop solar-electric generator, including the cost of any necessary remodeling or retrofitting work associated with the solar installation, from your federal income taxes. Thus, if you were to spend $10,000 dollars on your system, you will receive a $2,600 tax credit. As an added bonus, many states allow for households with solar units to qualify for a deduction on their state income taxes as well.
As you can see, you can access major savings by going solar. Whether it be saving on monthly bills, saving on reduced federal income taxes, or saving the environment, you can start saving with Blue Raven Solar today!
